Episode Summary

EDIT
Gettysburg
AIRED:
Andy and Vince are Civil War buffs who spend their weekends re-enacting battles from the historic conflict with others of similar persuasion. On this weekend, they're in Gettysburg for a giant recreation of the war's bloodiest battle when a photographer, Prentice asks to take their picture with his ancient tin-type camera. But when the shutter clicks, Andy and Vince find themselves transported back to the Confederate camp of Col. Angus Devine on the eve of the infamous 1863 battle. Prentice, who joins them in the past, explains that he has sent them back as a grand experiment, to see if history can in fact be changed, proving destiny is not final.moreless

  • How did this show know that a black US president will would be in office in 2013?

    7.0
    This program was first aired in 2000 and predicted THAT A BLACK US PRESIDENT WILL BE ASSASSINATED IN NOV. 2013. How did the people who put on this show know that Obama would be elected in 2008 and still in office in 2013? The odds are millions to one they could guess...

    This was a great episode as is the entire series. Meatloaf does a tremendous job. He lives the part.
  • Classic Outer Limits Time Travel

    8.5
    This was a great Outer Limits episode.. it encapsulated all the great ingredients of the Twilight-Zone/Outer Limits genre.. sci-fi (time travel), human tragedy and some social commentary... and 'MeatLoaf' is actually a pretty good actor. (He played a Confederate officer who was in deteriorating mental health) I really dig the Civil War, so all the scenery , uniforms and the general atmosphere really appealed to me in this episode... and I guess most Americans have wondered what is was (or would be) like to be caught up in the Civil War.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Geographical Error: Colonel Devine says to his men that if they win the battle of Gettysburg they will "march through the Shenandoah Valley to the steps of the Capitol". That would be impossible, since the Shenandoah Valley lies to the south-west of Gettysburg and would take them away from Washington. Actually, the historical battle of Gettysburg was preceded by the passing through the Shenandoah Valley in May 1863, almost two months before Gettysburg.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • [Closing Narration]
      Control Voice: Despite everything we do, we may never free ourselves from the bonds of fate.

    • [Opening Narration]
      Control Voice: It is said that great conflicts are not settled by words but by iron and blood. But what if we could revisit those decisions? Would we still surrender to violence?
